Grab your sword, Las Vegas. Winter is coming. Someone just announced that a Game of Thrones attraction is on its way to Las Vegas. And the details are something of a mystery.

The Game of Thrones popular show ran nine seasons, so it’s no surprise that someone would try to monetize an attraction based on the same franchise. Why now? Who’s to say? It might be to coincide with the Game of Thrones prequel, House of Dragons, which was released earlier this year.

We are pretty excited about the attraction. Or at least we think we are. We don’t know much about it. What little information we can gather comes from a website with just an enigmatic video.

If you go to the host’s website, gotdragonslv.com, you can watch the video. It opens on a close up shot of the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. But the sign is on the ground, half burnt, and seemingly the only thing left somewhat standing in what looks like a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas.

But it’s not the apocalypse. It’s dragons. Which the video makes a very clear a few seconds after it begins. One by one you see  dragons flying overhead what’s left of Sin City. But that’s it. Except for an expected “winter is coming to Las Vegas“ phrase at the end. Then the website suggests viewers sign up with their email. Perhaps to get updates. We don’t know.

And that’s the maddening thing. We don’t know anything else. But that’s also the exciting part. It could be anything. In the city known for its entertainment, the sky is the limit. Of course, when it comes to the details, we’re not going to just sit here and wait for deliverance. We’re going to speculate. So here is what we came up with as possible Game of Thrones themed attractions that would befit Las Vegas. Wendy Rush

  • Tournament of Kings, Dragon-Style

    The show is pretty much Game of Thrones anyway right? Dragons, swords, kings. Seems like it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to transform Tournament of Kings into an attraction based on the popular show.

  • Dragon Games At The MSG Sphere

    DOWNPATRICK, NORTHERN IRELAND - SEPTEMBER 16: An actor dressed as a White Walker character from the Game of Thrones series waits to pounce on unsuspecting fans as the Winterfell Festival takes place at Castle Ward on September 16, 2018 in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland. The HBO television series is largely filmed in the province with key scenes shot at the Castle Ward location. The series has also boosted the region's economy through tourism and a growing film production industry with the final season expected to air early next year.

    The MSG Sphere at The Venetian is a music venue, but also an amazing place to recreate a Hunger Games type of attraction. How much would you pay to don a sword and run around that arena chasing dragons? Actors dressed as White Walkers to make it even more realistic….could be cool.

  • GoT Studio Tour

    BANBRIDGE, NORTHERN IRELAND - FEBRUARY 02: Costumes and props are seen on display during a media preview day for the opening of the new Game of Thrones Studio Tour at Linen Mill Studios on February 2, 2022 in Banbridge, Northern Ireland. Created in partnership with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment, the worlds first and only Game of Thrones Studio Tour is located at Linen Mill Studios in Banbridge, Northern Ireland, where a significant proportion of the shows Northern Ireland based filming took place.

    There is a Game of Thrones studio tour in Banbridge, Northern Ireland. It is an interactive experience created in partnership with Warner Brothers. While the show wasn’t filmed in a studio in Las Vegas, it definitely could be recreated here for fans.

  • GoT Training Grounds

    BELFAST, NORTHERN IRELAND - AUGUST 13: Game of Thrones fans are given archery lessons similar to that seen on the television programme on August 13, 2015 in Belfast, Northern Ireland. According to recent audited figures from Northern Ireland Screen, the HBO produced fantasy adventure television series Game of Thrones has contributed an estimated £110m to the Northern Ireland economy. Many local companies have profited from providing services during production creating more than 900 full-time and 5,700 part-time jobs in the process. Due to the popularity of the series various locations highlighted on screen have become tourist attractions around the province. (Photo by Charles McQuillan/Getty Images)

    Um…yes please. Maybe a GoT training ground is coming to sin city! Visitors can don the costumes and learn archery or sword fighting.

  • Dragonzilla Zipline

    While Slotzilla at Fremont is fun in its own right, how much cooler would it be if you got to zipline with this bad boy on your back? Oooh or have him behind you so it’s like you’re trying to get away from him?? Okay we need to calm down.

  • GoT Museum Exhibit

    Madame Tussauds Las Vegas has revamped their looked several times over the years. Perhaps they’re planning a GoT wing in the near future.

  • GoT Cirque Show

    Considering what Cirque du Soleil has done with Ka, Mystere, O and all their other amazing spectacles, it wouldn’t be hard for them to put together an amazing GoT-themed show.

  • Return of the Bellagio Dragons

    Remember in 2019 when the Bellagio did their GoT-themed display? Maybe they’re bringing that back in honor of the prequel launch.

  • GoT Virtual Reality Experience

    There’s already one at the Warner Brothers Studio in Burbank, California. Maybe WB is expanding to Vegas. Area 15 would be an awesome venue for this.

  • Volcano Makeover

    LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - AUGUST 27: (EDITORS NOTE: This image was shot with a fisheye lens.) The volcano attraction in front of The Mirage Hotel & Casino erupts after the Las Vegas Strip resort reopened for the first time since mid-March because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on August 27, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Mirage is one of the last of 13 MGM Resorts International Las Vegas properties to reopen as part of its phased plan to resume operations based on travel demand. The volcano includes choreographed FireShooters sending fireballs more than 12 feet in the air and a custom soundtrack created by Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart and Indian tabla virtuoso Zakir Hussain.

    The timing of this video release is interesting, considering what else is going on around the Strip. It’s recently been announced that the change in ownership for the Mirage also means the end of the famous volcano. And while GoT doesn’t exactly go with the Hard Rock international vibe, anything is possible. I mean, they already have the fire. Just add dragons.
